    How did Gandalf's staff got back???

    HI,


    I wonder in the ROTK you see Pippin calling Gandalf to help Faramir
    and at that moment he has his staff
    but when he arrives at the chamber wher they are burning Faramir its gone!!!
    (yes, I have heard that spoilers that as Gandalf and Pippin are on their way to rescue Faramir, the Witchking breaks Gandalf's staff)!!!



    But how on earth(if it was broken)did he got it back in the Grey Havens????

    How did Gandalf get his staff in the first place?
    The fact is, the Grey Havens takes place quite a while after the battle.

    Of Galadriel is my guess. Gwaihir flew him to Lothlorien after the battle of with the Balrog. That's where he got the white clothes, so probably also his staff. He might get the new one there, too.

    perhaps gandalf got his new staff in valinor because remember in the book he still has his old staff. My guess would be valinor

    I wasn't asking, I should have been more clear.

    I did make the same assumption of Gandalf the White getting his things in Lothlorien a few months ago somewhere on this board.

    Yes, i also believe that he got his staff from galadriel after the whole war of the ring. That's where he went to gethis white clothes after the battle with the balrog as was stated earlier in this thread. There was also more than enough time b/t the end of the war of the ring and when he went to the grey havens to be able to get another staff.

    Or it could have come from his 'staff reserve'. Don't ask me what or where that is, but obviously he has more than one staff on hand. Case in point: the now-obvious 'staff switch' in FOTR, where the staff Gandalf carries in Moria is different from the one he carries at the beginning of the movie- because Saruman took that one.

    Of course, that was Gandalf the Gray. Maybe Gandalf the White only needed one staff at a time.

    In this thread I mentioned it in detail, but if you have the FOTR EE dvd check the design appendices for Gandalf, there are pics of the two and you can clearly see the differrences.

    Saruman took his first staff, then he had another one in moria, then he gott his white one in lothlorien, then the WK breaks that staff, then he gets a new one even though his work is done in middle earth? sounds wierd...
